Kick Ass star Aaron Taylor Johnson has revealed why wife Sam didn’t cast him in her upcoming flick Fifty Shades of Grey.
"I think it would have been the wrong kind of hype to bring toward us," the 23-year-old told Nylon Guys magazine.
Aaron’s wife, Sam Taylor Johnson, is directing the flick, which stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as the leads.
"It would have been kind of funny that this character that all these women fancy - he's one in a million - and my wife picks her husband to play the part? I would love to have done something together again, but it wouldn't have been Fifty. We were both on the same page."
Sam and Aaron – who have a 23-year age gap between them – first met on the set of Nowhere Boy, which Aaron was starring in and Sam was directing. While their relationship raised eyebrows, the couple went on to marry and have two children together.
And despite settling into the routine of marriage, the talented twosome – who were spotted at the MTV Movie Awards together on Sunday, where Aaron presented an award - have no desire to re-enact Fifty Shades’ racy plot themselves: "We don't have a Red Room at home!" Aaron re-assured the mag.
